abstract
"For 200 years the tumultuous Slave River played a major role in the transport of people and goods to the North. The 434-kilometre long Slave River connects the drainages of Lake Athabasca, and the Peace River to Great Slave Lake. Its 30 kilometer stretch of rapids were the only major obastacle along this gateway north and resulted in the creation of the Fitz-Smith portage. The towns of Fort Smith and Fort Fitzgerald grew at either end of the rapids as the demand for labour on the portages increased." -- Back of the cassette case.
